What it's all about:
Aging can surprise us. One day we can play or work like there is no tomorrow and the next day we think twice before planting a garden, playing tennis, or washing the car.
Because Western culture has a tendency to deny aging or at least hold it at bay, it’s difficult to find places to claim the gifts and changes which aging brings.
During the next two months, our LumZoom calls will provide opportunities to name the surprises of aging, the transitions of aging which have been easy and those which have been difficult, strategies which you have found helpful as you’ve aged, and what it means to age well.
We’ll draw on some research from the Stanford Center on Longevity and Parker Palmer’s latest book entitled
On the Brink of Everything: Grace, Gravity, & Getting Older
*Note: As these conversations are about aging, we recommend them for anyone who is 60 or older. Of course we will not be carding, so if you're younger than 60 you can probably sneak in!
